Top 10 Reasons Why People Attack Davido For His Father’s Wealth

Davido

It's almost like every other day that someone attacks Davido on Twitter because of his father's wealth. Sometimes they tweet at him, and other times, they sub him. No matter what he does or accomplishes, there are people who believe that it's only because he's an omo baba olowo (rich man's son). And you know my our people, they go above and beyond to tell a celebrity what they think of him/her, even if it's not positive. I am all for calling a celebrity out when he/she does something wrong, Continue Reading

My Complete Thoughts On Kim Kardashian In Nigeria

Darey & Kim

Darey (Dare?) had a concert this past weekend in Nigeria. I have read a lot of blogs that reported on the event, and everyone (including people that commented) have said two things in common: 1.  The concert was beyond amazing. It was like nothing they have ever experienced. 2.  Kim Kardashian made no difference whatsoever AND she was on stage for like a few seconds. When I wrote the piece "Lessons Hollywood Can Learn From Nollywood," that was my way of highlighting some of the Continue Reading

Who Is Kim’s Actual Baby Daddy? And Other Stories

Kim and Kanye

Okay, I'll admit it ... I am shocked and happy that Kim Kardashian and Kanye are STILL together. It's like everyday I read something about them, I'm surprised all over again. Unless they are giving us some bad ass photo ops, I think it's safe to say that these two are genuinely happy. And for some reason, I'm genuinely happy for them, too. Sometimes, we easily forget that these celebrities are just people, and they probably want what we all want: love, peace, joy, etc. In spite of my doubts, Continue Reading

Who Are You Rooting For?

My ladies: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, hosts of this year's Golden Globe Awards

The Golden Globe Awards is coming up this Sunday, and I am quite excited! Igwe is more of a Grammy Awards person, while I’m more of a Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, and of course, Oscar Awards type of person. That’s where all the fun stuff is. I think this is the first time I have watched quite a number of the nominated movies. And I am doubly excited that funny ladies, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting. It'll be live on Sunday, January 13th 2012 at 8pm Eastern Time on Continue Reading

Iyanya Dumps Tonto Dikeh For Tiwa Savage!

Iyanya!!! Bad guys.

Well, technically, that's not completely true. He has not dumped Tonto - yet. But it's definitely coming. By now, I'm sure most of you have heard of Iyanya dumping Yvonne Nelson for Tonto Dikeh. It's really bad when you are dumped - especially when you did not see it coming - but I think the only thing worse than being dumped [by Iyanya] is being dumped by Iyanya ... for Tonto. Like, how the heck does that happen?!?! When Iyanya's "Your Waist" song came out, Igwe couldn't stop laughing. He Continue Reading

Tonto, But Why?

Yeah. Okay.

Remember when I put up that post about Tonto cursing her fans (or foes) out on twitter because they dared to judge her songs before hearing them? Well, breaking news: they were right! And I am somewhat surprised because the way she cursed people out, I began to wonder if maybe she can actually sing. The temerity! (Spoken like a true Nigerian girl). Tonto has released two things which she's referring to as songs. Listening to these songs is not for the faint-hearted. It takes real courage. Real Continue Reading

United Sounds of Africa Tour: Best [Nigerian] Concert Ever? Plus Pictures Of Me & The Stars

A picture I took a while ago ... which does NOT show how I looked on this particular day

Two disclaimers: I am writing this as a personal opinion, not a fact. My judgment is based only on the [Nigerian] concerts that I have attended. Secondly, this concert was marketed and sold as an African - not Nigerian - concert, but I have decided to reserve my right to call it what I want. This past Monday, August 6th 2012, Igwe and I headed to Washington D.C for the United Sounds of Africa Tour (concert). As of twenty-four hours before, I was not completely sure that I will make it because Continue Reading

What Defines An A-List Actress?

Rukky Sanda

I notice that here in America, there are lists and classes of people in entertainment. For example, Angelina Jolie and Vivica A Fox cannot be compared or put in the same category. I don't know if the same rule applies to entertainers in Nigeria, but it sure doesn't feel like it. Continue Reading

The Breakfast Parlour
